Gaston County Republican Women October, 2017
(beginning August 2017, the GCRW will make every effort to publish their monthly newsletters on this website.
Please understand if we have the occasion to skip a month due to busy schedules. Especially the months we are helping on phone lines, at fundraisers or at the pollS. The best way to assure you receive every newsletter is to become a GCRW member!)
With the changing of the seasons, we begin to see signs of nature preparing for the cooler weather to come. This month, GCRW are preparing for our new slate of 2018 GCRW Officers. The nominating committee’s candidates will be announced and voted on in November. Having served as Vice President and President, I must say these two offices have allowed me to be on an incredible journey and learning curve, from Gaston County, through North Carolina, then on to Phoenix and Philadelphia. Having received an education beginning with our local GCRW, to understanding and participating in both the NC Federation of Republican Women and National Federation of Republican Women, I highly encourage all our ladies to take on a leadership role in this dynamic organization.
Each new member joining this past year will be receiving and invitation to the, GCRW, “Start Your Morning the Right Way”, Coffee. Home of Suzanne Riley, 10 AM, Wednesday, October 11th. This will be a wonderful way to meet fellow members and learn how this great organization works. Check your emails for your invitation Monday, October 2nd.
The GCRW October meeting will feature NC Representative John Torbett, giving the latest legislative update from our representatives in Raleigh. Also, we will be holding a Republican Forum featuring our Republican City Council Candidates. The Forum moderator will ask the candidates questions and then time will be allowed for members to ask the candidates questions. This will be an opportunity to have your question heard and answered.
Don’t forget we will be meeting at Gaston Country Club, 12 noon, October 19th. This past month 40 members and guests attended our meeting featuring guest speaker Katherine Restrepo from the John Locke Foundation.
Please RSVP by Oct 17th, if you are attending, so I may give an accurate head count to GCC. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or text Suzanne 704-819-4589.
The GCC offers a soup (2 soup selection) and salad bar for lunch. The method of paying will be the same as when we met at the City Club, each GCRW member will pay Bonnie Jansen (Treasurer) when they arrive. The prices for lunch will vary with what is ordered, pricing will include Tea, gratuity, and taxes. Bonnie can accept cash, credit card, but prefers us to pay with personal checks.
